The White House Communications Director Just Gave This Unhinged, Profanity-Laden Interview …to The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza.


The new and improved WH Communications Director. He’s a charmer. Quite the phone call he had with The New Yorker. He is a specimen of what is now “government at its finest”. Whether it is the attempted ban of transgenders, discrimination against anything “other” then the most corrupt administration we have yet to see, the beat goes on. I am not impressed when Republicans speak out about the horrors. They helped create their monster, as did the Democrats. In case anyone didn’t know it or want to acknowledge it, this country is occupied by a racist, bigoted, bible-thumping “I am the judge and jury” per one’s religious belief system and/or interpretation of whatever book I happen to think everyone else should read or follow, populace. So, spare me the outrage and indignation, as it is business as usual. I just think it is kind of funny to watch what makes people react, when there should have been a collective response of NO from the beginning of this charade.

From the article, via Mother Jones:

“They’ll all be fired by me,” he said. “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.” The issue, he said, was that he believed Priebus had been worried about the dinner because he hadn’t been invited. “Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci said. He channelled Priebus as he spoke: “ ‘Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.’ ” (Priebus did not respond to a request for comment.)

 

The New Yorker‘s Ryan Lizza just published an explosive, profanity-laden account of a phone call he received from the new White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci. The call was part of Scaramucci’s increasingly public campaignagainst alleged leakers in the West Wing. 

“Is it an assistant to the President?” he asked. I again told him I couldn’t say. “O.K., I’m going to fire every one of them, and then you haven’t protected anybody, so the entire place will be fired over the next two weeks.”

I asked him why it was so important for the dinner to be kept a secret. Surely, I said, it would become public at some point. “I’ve asked people not to leak things for a period of time and give me a honeymoon period,” he said. “They won’t do it.” He was getting more and more worked up, and he eventually convinced himself that Priebus was my source.

“They’ll all be fired by me,” he said. “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.” The issue, he said, was that he believed Priebus had been worried about the dinner because he hadn’t been invited. “Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci said. He channelled Priebus as he spoke: “ ‘Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.’ ” (Priebus did not respond to a request for comment.)

Scaramucci also had some colorful words about White House chief strategist Steve Bannon:

[He] also told me that, unlike other senior officials, he had no interest in media attention. “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,” he said, speaking of Trump’s chief strategist. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.” (Bannon declined to comment.)

Go read the whole thing because there is a lot more.

The White House did not immediately return an email from Mother Jones seeking comment.

Update 6:30pm ET: Anthony Scaramucci is #sorrynotsorry, basically:

 Follow

Anthony Scaramucci @Scaramucci

I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight for @realDonaldTrump's agenda.
